La traviata

La traviataT1860048242
Amongst the most popular of Verdi's operas, La traviata is the work of a master of the musical drama. Its perfumed arias and soaring choruses vividly depict the ravishingly decadent but glamorous world of Parisian high society as the background to a heart rending story of romantic happiness destroyed. Original book called La Dame aux Camelias.
Music Verdi
Lyrics Francesco Maria Piave
Book by Dumas

Production details

Set in the prohibition era of speakeasies and bootlegging, with Violetta's lover Alfredo a passionate young man whose optimism has been shaken by time at the front in the first world war, Violetta's protector ?the Baron' a gang boss, and Alfredo's father a crooked politician, this new production reveals the hypocrisy and heartache behind the glittering fa?ade of parties. Featuring a stunning young cast whose acting abilities are more than a match for their vocal talents, and with Verdi's sumptuous melodies accompanied by a trio of clarinet, cello and piano, this production is bound to be every bit as entertaining and moving as La Boheme. Running time: 2hrs 15mins
